This isn't entirely ...

My speculation on Giant names:

Maybe the first name is given by the parents at birth, and the second is bestowed in adulthood for some significant reason or other. Mistweave therefore doesn't have ...

That Berek took a branch from the One Tree to make a Staff of Law is implied, never certified.

And Elena's ghost in TPTP certainly was not passive. She using the Staff to levy Foul's Winter on the Land, and she tried to k ...

In WGW, Hollian is resurrected, another Law is broken.

For me, it's the climactic scenes in "The Banefire": the combat with Gibbon in the Hall of Gifts, Honingscrave imprisoning the Rave ...

Absent the elohim, the Worm wakes up sooner, and probably sooner yet due to the effects of the battle against the quellvisk on the Worm's slumbering.

But this rather begs the question: the Elohim d ...

We also never had Foul's Throne adequetely explained. Or at least Linden rejected (for chronologically sound reasons) the explanation offered by the croyel.

They admit the future is different, depending on current choice...but still think only one right choice, only one right path, and they know exactly what it is

I agree with this. It's part and parce ...
